At this very moment as I am typing this, it is so coincidental that the Kenny Roger's song is playing on the radio... "Buy me a rose, call me from work, open a door for me what would it hurt, show me you love me by the look in your eye, these are the little things I need the most in my life..."
In life, it need not always have to be roses and they do not need to come only from a boy friend or a husband. Friendship is not about constant devotion and attention. It is about keeping a friend in the heart such that regardless of time and distance a friend never disappears from one's mind. When friends do "little things" that are as simple as just dropping by for a cup of coffee after a long absence from our lives, we should cherish those precious moments because they did not happen by plan or design but by feelings, hunch, chance, fate, destiny or just the need to say hello to a particular person at that point in time.
Over the green bean soup that my friend cooked and shared with me, we surfed the internet to learn more about this ginger flower. We found two sites that had photos resembling the flowers she gave me. The names given were: Hedychium 'Dr. Moy' (Hardy Speckled Ginger Lily) and the other one was Peach Butterfly Ginger. Though the flowers look like the "Dr Moy", the leaves were not speckled. It could also be the Peach Butterfly Ginger but I really could not be sure. Anyway, I am sure that this ginger plant belongs to the same family as the other two based on overall appearance.
